The work of artists who use new media art, live art and other
'variable media' is increasingly being drawn into our national public
collections. Excellent models exist where major works are acquired or
where artists are commissioned specifically to create works for
collections. This symposium offers an opportunity to learn from
pioneering institutions that have worked with artists. Keynote
speaker: Benjamin Weil, Chief Curator of LABoral Centro de Arte y
Creacion Industrial de Gijon, Spain. Other confirmed speakers
include: Laura Sillars, Programmes Director, FACT; Lisa Panting,
Director, Picture This; Lois Keidan, Director, Live Art Development
Agency; Graham Harwood, artist.
Programmed by the Contemporary Art Society's National Network in
partnership with CRUMB.
